Re: what to carry in my backpack

Get a leatherman, or similar multitool. As for holding the drive face I've found wedging a flathead screwdriver in the gears of the drive face and bracing it on the starter gear works in a roadside bind.

Re: Help with the MB5! PLEEEEASE!

I've seen so much fluctuation in the prices lately. I've seen them up to your price and all the way down to 400 for a busted one. Al depends on the market and quality I guess. I know most people I talk to about them have no clue what I'm talking about.

Re: Help with the MB5! PLEEEEASE!

I know! I just want to ride something that works. Right now I have an SE50 with a bad case/ oil seal, a SB50 with a constant fuel problem, a garelli VIP that won't fire, an MB5 that won't run right, an mb5 parts bike, and a naked se50 with no motor. Its getting frustrating. I even offered a guy both...

Re: Help with the MB5! PLEEEEASE!

Damnit I was afraid of that. I just went back out to try some jets that I forgot I had laying around. I popped a 90 in and fired it back up. Still revs up with choke out. But does run with the choke in. Also when I turn the screw OUT it starts revving the nuts off it. I have it turned almost all the...

Help with the MB5! PLEEEEASE!

I have an MB5 (guess which year) it runs really nice and starts up first kick. but only when the choke is pulled out. I can adjust the rpms with the choke. When its all the way out it will rev all the way up to 11K (when its warmed up) then I can lower the idle down to about 1.5K by pushing the chok...

Re: Possibly picking up a 1982 MB5. Any options?

I have no other place to keep them. I just picked up a garelli VIP so I'm quickly running out of space. I'm going to be getting rid of both my scooters soon so I can focus more on my other rides.

The intake was resealed when I reinstalled it. Think it could be the case gasket or oil seals?

Spark plug is brand new gap is whatever it comes with. Plug was not wet when I pulled it to check compression. BPR7S is what I've always used.
